"Can Democracy Work?" is James Miller's sequel to his book of thirty years ago, "Democracy Is in the Streets." In the intervening years he seems to have become less certain of the answer.
I have been re-reading James Miller's 1987 "Democracy is in the Streets" since he was in Oakland a month ago. The book provides a richly detailed account of the short life of the "Students for a Democratic Society" (SDS) from their beginnings at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in 1962 through their being a major driving force behind the protests against the Vietnam war to their collapse in 1969.
